Ahisma / Fuckgodintheface - Split 12"

Today's download is the split by Ahisma and Fuckgodintheface and it is 12 whole inches of crusty metal goodness. After some internet sleuthing I've discovered that members of these bands have gone on to play with Wolves in the Throne Room and Ninth Moon Black. I don't know much more about either of these bands, other than that I think they both came from Oregon, so I will just let the music speak for itself.

Shoplifting - Body Stories

Shoplifting arose from the ashes of the first incarnation of Chromatics, who themselves had risen out of the remnants of The Vogue & Soiled Doves. Composed of members Hannah Blilie (drums/vocals), Melissa Lock (bass), Chris Pugmire (guitar/vocals) & Devin Welch (guitar/keyboards), Shoplifting pick up the post punk torch left behind by their former bands, though Shoplifting definitely has a more dance feel than Soiled Doves or Chromatics ever had. They released one album, Body Stories, and one EP before the members moved on to other projects such as The Gossip and Past Lives.
